[♪ theme music ♪] >> john: good morning, this is the "bill press show." i'm john fugelsang filling in for bill this morning and all week long. it will be a very exciting "bill press show." we'll be talking about benghazi and the scam that wasn't. we'll be talking about twinkies and how the main stream media has failed to mention that it wasn't just unions that failed the company to go out of business. we'll talk about reince prebus gets to keep his job, and that and much more. but first let's to lisa ferguson. >> hey, john. good morning, everyone. president obama is on his way to cambodia. his first stop over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform.
on current.com about john kerry and why president obama should give him the job of secretary of state and not ambassador susan rice. nothing against ambassador susan rice. it is just that john kerry deserves it. he's the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee and oh, by the way again without john kerry saying oh yeah, president obama, barack obama you can do the keynote speech in 2004 when you're only a state senator who's running for senate without that opportunity, there is no obama campaign in 2008. john kerry wants the job. give it to him. got some guy malcolm johnson would calls that 100% idiotic statement. too bad, malcolm. that's how it is. special shout out to the folks on twitter. dab ra and alan -- debra and alan and a couple of others. honesty following us on twitter. >> tweeting at bp show, on this topic, patricia says the media has been reduced to reporting g.o.p. conspiracy theories which is a good point. buckeye kenny saying they're going to try to turn this into something to ruin the presid
with the kind of entrenched senate air stock ra si. who are they worried about beating them? someone like john mccain isn't that worried. he has been the most vocal voice. and it's hard to see whether those are going to reign him in. the question is do other people who care about their political future and have national aspirations, this they are more likely to likely to walk away from this conspiracy theory. >> we saw harry reid shut down the idea of there being a senate select committee, a mega investigation along the lines of watergate. we also saw resistance to that idea from richard mur, susan collins, joe lieberman, republican speaker of the house john boehner. i felt like that all isolated john mccain a lot. but you know, maybe he stands alone in terms of his influence on foreign policy matters. >> he does. but there's distance emerging between him and where everyone else is. and partly, we should remember this was very -- this was wielded to the election partly because there was this hope and you'd see it all over the conservative blogs. this was the thing that was going to turn around
john kerry's name as a candidate for secretary of defense. i couldn't help but read that above the article in the washington post, he didn't get the job for secretary of state and somebody is trying to throw some sort of bob. people like john kerry are completely incapable of helping the pentagon deal with this problem, even that problem. led of the on the problem that is going to occur. the other candidates for leadership of the pentagon to be it through this era, a very smart -- no background in any of these issues. the other candidates is ashton carter. he is perceived as a good manager. if you look at his job on the f 35 i simply cannot agree. he is not picking on the fundamental efforts of problem represents. he let it float to the future and it is going to face a phase in this, even in the sequestered scenario, it will do nothing but increase the cost on airplane which is a disappointment in terms of performance and that is a result of his management. i don't see him as a competent candidate to lead the pentagon through this future, thank you very much. >> thank you, wins

directly at odds with house speaker john boehner. >> could you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy? we've seen talk about a possible compromise that could leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all no, way? >> no. the preponderance made it very clear in his campaign that there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. you cannot go forward -- you have to cut some investments. if you cut too many you are hampering growth, you're hampering education, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestments in the stock market. >> he later clarified his comments at a news conference. >> yes, we were working on
." that's what nancy pelosi talked about. that's what speaker john boehner talked about, constructive, but there's also a lot of urgency. now, nancy pelosi, we have a lot more of this interview, a fascinating interview, told me she thought they could work out this deal in mid-december. i asked her, of course, look, we've heard optimism before and this went nowhere. but there is that urgency now. americans are sick of this. this is the second time around. >> and so overnight we saw -- we saw this video of david petraeus' alleged mistress, paula broadwell, his biographer walking with her husband. it's the first time we've seen the two of them since this scandal broke. so let me ask you about the petraeus affair, which i know you've been following so closely. where does this go now? what in your view is likely to be the next shoe to drop? >> well, i think what we've learned this week is this is not over. i think a week ago when we heard david petraeus say he was resigning because he had an extramarital affair, we thought it might go away. but every day it seems like there's something new
times" john har wood and "washington post" amy gardner. thank you for being here. appreciate that. you heard senator graham essentially accusing the administration of misleading on the nature of the benghazi attack. what's your attack? >> my attack take is that benghazi has become the channel through which republicans remaining unhappiness about the election outcome is being focused. look, it was catastrophic tragedy. but we have an explanation from petraeus for why susan rice said what she said. that is to say they deliberately obscured what they knew in order to avoid giving away too much to our adversaries. now you could say why did you need to do that? i'm not competent to say what advantage was gained there, but i'm not sure in the alternative what advantage anyone thinks the obama administration was going to get by misleading. the event happened. did anyone think the obama administration was trying to preserve some illusion that terrorists never would hit us as long as obama was president? we have been at war with terrorists 11 years and lost thousands of lives. i don't understan
. john mccain and lindsey graham said they will do everything in their power to block her confirmati confirmation. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> we haven't seen the president like that in a while. >> testy. defiant. kind of his make my day moment. go after her, make my day. i mean, in a way, and you could look at this two ways politically. you could say, okay, did he do that because now he's going to nominate her to be secretary of state when hillary clinton leaves or did he do it to get it on the record so when he nominates something else like john kerry, he is on the record saying you didn't cow me t not elect her. >> an unprecedented var eed shae vote being nonwhite, do republicans really want the first thing they do in 2013 is filibuster the nomination of a

and president obama may show those quotes of john boehner and eric cantor. >> haley barbour on taxes, and this is from the republican governors association meeting in la las vegas. quote, if there's enough savings, if there's enough certainty about tax reform the next few years, i would, former governor haley barbour said when asked whether his party should consider softening its opposition to letting the bush tax cuts on the wealthiest expire. i mean, that's just an amazing, amazing, amazing switch from where we even were on the campaign trail last week. >> well, that's right, luke. and also governor bob mcdonnell said something else. elections have consequences and that, of course, was a line republicans used in 2011 during the debt ceiling negotiations as well as all of the other times they were actually trying to trim the budget deficit saying, look, this is why we were elected in 2010 to come and do this. now president obama has that same argument in 2012. look, the presidential contest was fought on the contours of raising taxes on the wealthy. i won. now it's time to negotiate
posted better than expected first quarter reports. john chambers sounds a cautious but optimistic note about the u.s. economy. >> you're watching "worldwide exchange," bringing you business news from around the globe. >>> hello. welcome to today's "worldwide exchange". >> 40 unions in 23 countries. that's the strikes that are planned across europe today. so if you thought there couldn't be any coordination, there is coordination. >> how are we going to be affected? >> you know, air travel, surprisingly, they have had to have a lot of cancelling due to strikes. >> we're fully at our jobs. there's two hours of it today. let's remind you exactly what's coming up. we'll have updates from beijing throughout the program as the new generation takes the first step towards leadership. >> and we're in london. talk to the ceo of wpp, martin sorrel. >> we discuss japanese banks. >> and the latest on cisco from silicon valley as the network equipment maker warns of slowing growth this quarter and some falling demand in europe. >> more than 2,000 delegates have cast their votes for china's new centr
of those things need to be in play. when john boehner talks about raising revenue he's willing to do that if it only comes in the form of tax reform, not raising tax rates, but actually lore erring tax rates, closing loopholes, broadening the base and you will get more money coming into the treasury. the other part of the equation that is so important which has not been part of the public conversation is cutting spending, not just slowing the rate of growth but actually cutting spending to try to get this deficit under control. i know the republicans don't control the narrative on this but i want to hear more from them on that side of the equation. jon: julie our nodding your head you must agree. >> i think both sides need to come to the table. enough already with these sort of, you know, showmanship, game man ship, these are people's lives that are at stake in this economy. monica is right in that the president does control the upper hand at this point. if nothing is done all the bush tax rates will expire. you have exit polling coming out of the recent election saying two-thirds of
of avoiding the fiscal cliff. he'll meet with harry reid, mitch mcconnell, john boehner and nancy pelosi at quarter after 10:00 eastern time. mcconnell says republicans won't raise tax rates. the white house says the president won't sign an extension of tax cuts for top earners. chinese officials including the country's vice minister are sounding alarm bells with external risks to growth. they hope the uts will come to an agreement on tax issues or warns the country could face a slide into deep recession. eunice yoom is taking a closer look at the relationship between the two economic super powers and how they're likely to proceed. >> she's sitting down to her regular taste of americana. she and her co-workers dine out at their favorite fast food joint from the west twice a week, exactly the kind of middle income chinese american companies hope will drive their future growth. >> translator: we're used to eating rice, she says. it's convenient and nice to have fast food once in a while and have a change. american companies are hoping gnaw leadership will make it easier to sell to chinese
for contemplation here at the edge of washington's fiscal cliff as republicans like john baner have not months or weeks but days to decide if they overturn decades of party orthodox and tax increases to head off something worse across the board spending cuts and tax increases that could throw the economy into a recession. look at the overall debt in excess of 16 trillion dollars. part of the debate whether or not social security and medicare should be on the table. seed on the phone from buzzard's bay. republican line. >> good morning. steve, we've got so many groups and caucus they're all saying now you have your it's time for me to have mine. once that group gets what they want the next group says, well the first two got what they want and this is what we want. this, i don't see this ending. it's very sad situation and unfortunately i don't see much of a future as long as we have all these groups and caucuses. can i give you constructive criticism. i've been watching c-span now for decades and especially "washington journal". if i don't see it live i'll watch the tape. the new gentlemen you
along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as
chief justice roberts for preparing me john june 28 for the disappointment i would feel on november 6. i approached the court that day with a lot of anticipation. i had read all the breefs in that case and sat through four days of oral argument in that case. i had watched every movement, every eye twitch, every response to every question, every facial expression and i had listened closely to all the questions that they had asked. i thought i knew what the answer was going to be. a lot of it was wishful thinking. but i approached the courtroom that day with a lot of anticipation and a lot of hopefulness. as i took my seat in the bar session of the supreme court that day. i look to my right and slightly behind me to the section of the courtroom where the law clerks sit. i remembered just a few years earlier when i served aze a law clerk and sat in those chairs and i remembered how much fun it was to watch the justices announce a decision that they had been working on. we knew the result before the rest of the audience did. it was fun to watch their reactions. then i looked to my right and
for that and don't want it and, two, can john boehner rally a republicans who doesn't want to raise taxes? to that end it's unbelievable. the election was only 13 days ago. >> i know. >> there's been a lot of piling on mitt romney in those 13 days. i want to play something tea party republican senator had to say. this was at the federalist society about the election. let's play it. >> inevitably there are these mandarins in politics who give the voice don't show any contrast. don't rock the boat. so by the third debate, i'm pretty certain mitt romney actually french kissed barack obama. >> okay, let's put aside that image. >> yes. >> this suggests that, you know, these are the manndarins of politics, don't show any contrast, don't rock the boat,s so you have the ted cruzs of the world coming in and the boehners saying we node to caught deal on this, reform on immigration, talk about gay marriage. we need a reformation within the party. is that what the base of the party wants? and if they don't want that, if ted cruz is the voice for that party, how do you get there? >> well, the base doe
and slower revenue growth for the current quarter. john chambers sees europe getting worse before it gets better, but he says there are signs of improvement in the u.s. economy. >> we want to be the one company that both exceeds expectations and doesn't bring down guidance. so kind of a hint on terms of what we see. it really says we're in the right spots for growth. mobility, byod, the internet of everything, video, all growth areas in terms of opportunities going forward. and we think we're positioned pretty well. >> we've also got some facebook news this morning. toyota recalling nearly three million vehicles worldwide, that includes the prius. this is due to problems with the steering system. the announcement comes a month after toyota recalled more than seven million vehicles for faulty power window switches that are a potential fire hazard. mr. kernen, good morning. >> andrew, 20 seems to be what facebook is worth, kind of? >> well, it hasn't moved. >> but it kind of found its -- 38, i don't know. but things are worth something, even after you get the people that are really excited
this campaign, and where all that money went. with trevor potter who is general counsel of mccain, john mccain's campaign and a lawyer at kaplan and drysdale. [audio difficulty] >> -- way for us, which is -- [applause] [audio difficulty] >> the colbert superpac. [laughter] so he's been on colbert many, many times, and this little segment is colbert handing off his pac to john mccain, all of which -- according to trevor -- to jon stewart, is perfectly legal. all right. cue the tape. >> can i run for president and keep my superpac? don't sugar coat it. >> no. >> okay. that's a little less sugar than i was hoping for. [laughter] >> you could have it run by somebody else. >> wait, what? what? someone else can take it over? >> yes. but someone who you would not be coordinating with in terms of pac ads and strategy. >> oh, trevor, i wouldn't want to even create the appearance of electoral skull dug erie, if that's a word i can say on a family show. [laughter] but i think, i think there may be a guy. jon? jon stewart, everybody! trevor, if you will, colbert superpac transfer activate. [laughter]
of general david petraeus has expanded to general john allen. the impact of all this on the intelligence community and national security will be part of several hearings on capitol hill later this week. lawmakers return to washington today amid a shake-up of the president obama national security team, facing the looming issue of the so-called fiscal cliff. that is where we want to begin today this morning. president obama will meet later on with labor leaders who are insisting that the president not compromise on cuts to medicare and social security. what is your take on this? avoiding this -- avoiding the fiscal cliff? host: remember, you can send us a clear message, post your comments on facebook, or send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. courtesy of the newseum, washington, front page of that newspaper and many of the newspapers this morning, including "the washington post," liberal groups prepare for an entitlement fight. this is what zachary goldfarb rights. -- writes. host: there is what president obama said in the past that he might do. we're turning to you outside washington toda
-- too sophisticated to fight each other. john maynard keynes echoed this with his famous observation about how an englishman could order from his doorstep products from far lands and have them -- faraway lands and have them delivered to him. it's kind of an early version of thomas friedman's delve theory which claims that advanced countries that use computers won't go to war together, i call it the starbucks theory. i guess unless they have triple espressos. in a much different way, it was posited that war would be so bloody that no one would dare risk a conflict. all of these views assume that european leaders would be rational, a stretch even in the present day. this, of course, vanished in august 1914. a war sparked by one of the most unlikely of accidents when archduke ferdinand on his way back from a speech turned away from his planned route to visit a guard injured in an earlier, failed assassination attempt. of course, he drove to his death, an incident that would plunge the world into a conflagration. i won't delve into the details of world war i here. perhaps the most signif
in hoboken. three weeks after the disaster, john bentley reports from sea bright where neighbors are helping neighbors. >> you're doing a great job. we appreciate everything you're doing. >> i appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> we need people like you. you should be the mayor. >> i don't want to be the mayor. >> reporter: chris wood may not be the mayor of sea bright, new jersey, but he is spearheading the relief efforts here. the actual mayor, deana long, couldn't be happier. >> i'm glad to see you smiling. in times of crisis, people's true colors really come through and boy, chris woods is bright colors. >> we've been doing about 150 breakfasts, somewhere around 2,000 lunches and somewhere around 200 dinners. >> reporter: wood is a lifelong resident of this beachside town. after sandy decimated sea bright, he stepped up by gathering supplies, organizing volunteers. >> it's all good. >> no better way than giving back than feeding everyone. that's what we're doing. >> reporter: chris woods first job out of college was as a bouncer at this bar which he now owns and calls woody's. that
traveling with the president. dan, thank you. >>> senator john mccain says the u.s. must use its influence to try to bring an end to the violence along the border between israel and gaza, and he knows, john mccain says he knows just the man to do it. mccain says former president bill clinton should get involved. when he was president, mr. clinton held negotiations at camp david between israel and the palestinian authority. here's what mccain had to say about it on cbs' "face the nation." >> try to find someone, even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton. to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together. >> all right. the latest recount in florida shows congressman allen west trailing his democratic challenger patrick murphy by nearly 2,000 votes. west, a tea party favorite, is trying to keep this seat representing florida's 18th congressional district. unofficial numbers posted on sunday evening on the florida secretary of state's website give murphy an edge,
, the president, all making sure that this is not swept under the carpet here. john, i do not know. when i saw him, these men are away for a long time. my stepfather was in the military. my first husband had a silver star in vietnam. i know what it is like for men and women to be separated. i feel sorry for holly and her family, but at the same time these men, they are not robots. host: diane, thank you for the call this morning. here is the editorial from "the wall street journal." it notes that "if the leaks are correct, the fbi was investigating him for months." host: edward, independent line, thank you for calling. caller: thank you for taking my call. i feel the general is an honorable man who made a mistake. we're all human and we all make errors. most politicians would not do that. that being said, i would like to make a comment about this benghazi thing. republicans have made such a big deal out of it. ronald reagan sent over 200 marines to their death and there was no public outrage. where is the republican outrage? only because of obama do we get this kind of reaction. thank you. host: e
skaur enough votes to implement an austerity budget so now he's back to help john boehner secure enough votes versus the president to press for an austerity budget, is that right? >> yeah, that's correct, martin. it's interesting, there's a lot of criticism saying paul ryan's vision for an american budget was routinely rejected flat out by voters a little more than a week ago. so why will he have such an impact in terms of the fiscal cliff negotiations? and the reason is that paul ryan, despite the presidential loss, continues to be the ideological godfather of the current republican budget -- >> but, luke, he just got ripped to shreds. he just got pulverized in the election. in fact, so many of his ideas, he had to go quiet on because they were so deficient and attacked during the presidential campaign. yet there you are now telling our audience he's back and republicans have him as their -- one of their main stakeholders. >> he's very much still an important player within the house republican conference. so much so that speaker boehner when it came to having a daily meeting about the
of congress. republicans john boehner and mitch mcconnell and democrats nancy pelosi and harry reid. >> we had a very constructive meeting with the president to talk about america's fiscal problem. >> we all know something has to be done. >> it was good. i feel confident that a solution may be in sight. >> we're prepared to put revenue on the table, provided we fix the real problem. >> tax hikes and spending cuts could go into effect simultaneously if no deal is reached on the fiscal cliff by the end of the year, both sides have said they are willing to compromise. house speaker boehner says republicans realize that neither side will get everything it wants. >>> exactly one week after he abruptly resigned as head of the cia, david petraeus was back on capitol hill. he met yesterday behind closed doors to brief lawmakers on the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. according to lawmakers who were there, petraeus now says the attack was an act of terrorism and not the result of a spontaneous anti-western demonstration as initially reported. four americans died in the benghazi
are not as john donne wrote, an island entirely of itself. the theme of city and society will highlight the range, that, and breadth of our contribution to this society. the city's 108 companies alone at support over 200 reserve and regular units and armed forces. 100 cadet units and almost 350 its occasional establishments. this affects tens of thousands of young lives with scholarships and the apprenticeships. city is vital and creating jobs and growth abroad. supporting and service businesses and the wider economy, so we will work closely with the city u.k. and international regulatory strategy group, promoting the idea to services and business and well-established markets, as well as a dynamic new developing economies. not least, talking about how crucial london is as europe's financial center. the chair of the policy committee and i have the ambition to visit or hold an event for every single one of our eu partners next year. we will work to enhance the predictability and clarity we offer business, how that promotes the u.k. international attractiveness, and how that benefits us here in the
the second volume we are working on now. as john mentioned, this is volume one deficit to 1945 and volume two will be out about this time next year, 1946 to president. i have to warn readers, such as those who see me speak before probably know me for a little more lighthearted insertion, but this is instead dominated by two unspeakably deadly wars sandwiched around a nearly worldwide depression and characterized by such villains as miscellany, stallman and hitler. i don't even think joe biden cannot get that material. while we have some sidebar section, one of my favorite is a comparison and contrast between the world are to puncture the architects of the day, tony gaudi walter gropius who epitomize nature, god and man and not order a robert pires during race for the north pole. the bulk of this book is dedicated to those political forces that reshape the century. as one who gravitates the great gary, osama said above servers last week at a book signing event when a questioner asked me, who's the most person in your vote? it dawned on me this really isn't a book about the most important peopl
very much for having me. >> thank you. >>> still to come, rbc wealth management ceo john taft on why he thinks dividend stocks will protect your portfolio. >>> plus cftc commissioner bart chilton talks to us what needs to be done for the markets to open after a major disaster, something we saw after sandy. "squawk box" will be back right after this. >>> up next, spanning the sea with c-span, the ceo of the world's largest cargo leasing company talks global economic risk and outlook for the industry. that's next on "squawk box." >>> welcome back to "squawk box" this morning. take a look at futures. we have red arrows across the board, dow looks like it would open up 47 points higher, s&p off and nasdaq as well. >>> a continuation of the special shipping series, a ceo calls the container shipping market the ocean highway, jerry wang is co-ceo of seaspan corporation, one of the shipping leaders profiled in "dynasties of the sea" lori ann's new book. good morning, mr. wang. good to see you. >> good morning. good to hear from you. >> we've already had a little bit of conversation about this
